Gordon Gilbert Forrest

March 31, 1968 - April 13, 2016

Tribute

Gordon Gilbert, born in Powell River on March 31, 1968, passed away suddenly on April 14, 2016, at the age of 48. Gord was predeceased by his father Chuck and is survived by his son Erick, mother Gladys and sister Shelley.

Gord was a third-generation logger, born into a pioneering family in Powell River. He followed his father's footsteps, working in the bush his entire life. Gord was a loving father, son and brother, and was liked by all who knew him.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Salvation Army or Powell River Logger Sports would be greatly appreciated.

A service will be held Saturday, April 23, at 2 pm at Beach Gardens Resort and Marina.
Loggers don't sit around much discussing church, religion or prayer, but a wise man once said, if you ever get to heaven, you'll be surprised who you'll run into there. And when the last trumpet's been sounded and all life's secrets unfold, we'll find more than one set of caulk boot tracks on those streets of solid gold.
